STRENGTH: The primary benefit to adding weights to Pilates exercises is to add tone and strength to all muscle groups particularly core muscles including back, stomach, shoulders & chest. The great thing about Pilates with weights is you create strength without bulk.
All our exercises can be adapted to suit your individual needs - using smaller weights if necessary.
We use either small dumbells or weighted balls around 1-2 kg in order to ensure correct alignment. Smaller weights in Pilates allow you to control & stabilise your joints’ range of movement.
Adding weights to Pilates heightens your focus of your body positioning making you really concentrate on the precision of each move.
Adding extra challenge will help you exert more energy therefore burn more calories.
KEEPING IT FRESH:
As with all our Pilates classes we aim to continually add new variations to traditional exercises by offering a full range of small equipment to keep you on your toes.
The physical benefits of Pilates include an increase in muscle strength and tone without creating bulk. The increase in deep core muscle strength helps to make your abdominal muscles look tight and toned. It also improves your flexibility and posture, which can decrease your chances of injuring yourself.
